#10 Messi and Pinto
The Goalkeeper may have left Barcelona but that hasn’t caused his relationship with his best friend to be affected. Messi and Pinto have been frequently spotted in each other’s company at various sporting events as well as nightclubs. Ever since Pinto arrived in 2008 he has had a positive relationship with Messi. PREVIEW FOR #9: Now that Giroud is a firm fixture at the Emirates, he will surely be catching up on some quality time with his best pal Koscielney. They had similar pasts within the lower French leagues before developing into higher tier players and it was probably Kocielney who twisted Giroud’s arm into coming to Arsenal in the first place.
